I'm trying really hard to use items from my sewing/craft room and not make any new purchases for my projects. I found a few candles and decided to try and decorate them with leftovers from previous craft projects.
Here's what I came up with:
HOPE candle has a piece of contact paper from the dollar store, layered with a piece of burlap and a primitive star that has "hope" stamped on it.
2nd candle-a piece of upholstery webbing and raffia layered on the top.
DREAM candle, scrap of burlap, sisal rope and another primitive heart with dream stamped on it.
Here are few ways that I chose to display them.
****Here's an update to where the candle in center finally found a home.
Stay tuned to see what I can come up with next from a bunch of leftovers.
